Special Envoy for Freedom of Religion or Belief Bill (17 May 2024)

Lisa Cameron: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Congleton (Fiona Bruce) on all her work on the Bill and in this area. I was privileged to be involved in Committee, and I fully support the work that she has undertaken and wishes to be taken forward under the Bill. The Prime Minister’s special envoy for freedom of religion or belief plays a role that is so important to many people...

Licensing Hours Extensions Bill (17 May 2024)

Lisa Cameron: The Minister is making an excellent speech. I, too, give my wholehearted support to the Bill, on behalf of pubs across Scotland and in my constituency. It might not have a direct impact there, but we recognise its importance right across the United Kingdom and the important message it sends, so I thank the Minister —and remind him that I am still from Scotland.

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: New Clause 14 - Application of the Part I of the Health Act 2006 to vaping (14 May 2024)

Lisa Cameron: My hon. Friend is making a very passionate speech on behalf of herself and my hon. Friend the Member for Sleaford and North Hykeham, who I am sure will be very pleased with the contribution. However, I have to say that I agree with the hon. Member for North Tyneside because the evidence that we heard strongly suggested that smoking and vaping are not commensurate. My hon. Friend the Member...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 62 - Contents and flavour of vaping products and nicotine products (14 May 2024)

Lisa Cameron: The Minister is making a considered point. The Committee has received research data from ASH that highlights how complex the issue is. Although 50% of child vapers preferred fruit flavours, 47% of adult vapers also preferred fruit flavours. We therefore have to consult on and take these issues forward in a very considered way, because we do not want to undermine the harm reduction from...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 11 - Displays of vaping and nicotine products ( 9 May 2024)

Lisa Cameron: The Minister is making an extremely important point: we have to do everything in a proportionate manner. Although we need to protect children, and do not want children—I have children of my own—to take up vaping in childhood or have access to vapes, vaping can be a harm-reduction approach for adults. Putting vapes behind the counter, like tobacco, might go against some of the evidence we...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Clause 7 - Sale of vaping products to under 18s ( 9 May 2024)

Lisa Cameron: The hon. Lady is making a very informed speech, but I want to pick up on one thing. She said that the sole purpose of the vaping industry is to get people addicted to vaping, but does she acknowledge that many people across the UK, and particularly adults, as we heard in evidence, have reduced their addiction through vaping? They are tapering down the amount of nicotine they are using, as...

Written Answers — Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office: The Gambia: Religious Freedom ( 8 May 2024)

Lisa Cameron: To ask the Deputy Foreign Secretary, if he will take steps to help tackle discrimination and persecution faced by Christians in the Gambia; and if he will make an assessment of the potential impact of the level of discrimination and persecution face by Christians on religious freedom in the country.

Written Answers — Treasury: Central Bank Digital Currencies ( 8 May 2024)

Written Answers — Treasury: Central Bank Digital Currencies ( 8 May 2024)

Lisa Cameron: To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether his Department has made an assessment of the potential merits of using a potential digital pound for its own disbursements and cash management.

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 1 May 2024)

Lisa Cameron: Q I am interested in the psychology of vaping. Do you see that as being somewhat different, particularly for younger people, from smoking? Is it seen as more fashionable because of the packaging and the social media around it, perhaps because of the flavours and so on, or is the psychology for both much the same?

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witnesses ( 1 May 2024)

Lisa Cameron: Q But is it more fashionable to use vapes for young people than to smoke?

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witness ( 1 May 2024)

Lisa Cameron: When I worked in mental health servicesQ , we often found that there was an association between people who were smoking cigarettes and also cannabis and having aggravated psychotic symptoms. Do you think that the measures in the Bill will help people to avoid smoking in general and therefore be less likely to move on to smoking cannabis as well and aggravating those psychotic episodes?

Prime Minister: Engagements ( 1 May 2024)

Lisa Cameron: My husband is a veteran, and the defence of the country is the Government’s first duty, in order to protect people across the United Kingdom. Can the Prime Minister reassure the House that he has a plan in place for backing our world-leading armed services, and does he know why the Opposition refuse to back his plan?

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witnesses (30 Apr 2024)

Lisa Cameron: Q This question is for John. You stated in the response to the Bill that enforcing the new age restriction will present its own challenges. What challenges do you foresee? Will the sector be penalised if it cannot tell the difference between a 35-year-old and a 40-year-old? How do you manage those intricacies?

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witness (30 Apr 2024)

Lisa Cameron: Q Do any of your members worry that they might get into some bother if they think that someone looks a bit older than they are, and they do not ask them for identification? I am just wondering what sort of training would be beneficial, because you mentioned that you were looking to put in place training prior to this going through.

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witness (30 Apr 2024)

Lisa Cameron: Q But it is probably more difficult to tell whether someone is 35, 40 or 45 than whether someone is an older adult, going on a bus, or whether someone is a teenager rather than someone in their mid-20s. I am just wondering how that could work, in a sense, in terms of the training.

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witness (30 Apr 2024)

Lisa Cameron: We heardQ this morning that some individuals and families had misinformation about vaping. We were given the example that, where the flavour is grapefruit or another fruity flavour, people might think that it is actually beneficial for children to be using vapes. Should we tackle those types of flavours and do more in terms of education, to make sure that families are aware that just...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of witness (30 Apr 2024)

Lisa Cameron: Q Thank you; I will be very brief. Do you think it is fair to describe older adults as having made a choice, when perhaps it was not an informed choice, given the misinformation and lack of evidence at the time that they made the choice to start smoking?

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witnesses (30 Apr 2024)

Lisa Cameron: Q I have been hearing from parents and schools in my constituency that they are very concerned that children are going out at lunchtime and spending their lunch money on vapes, so they are not having anything nutritious during the day. Is there any evidence that indicates that there might be a pattern developing in that respect that will have an impact on children’s physical health and...

Public Bill Committee: Tobacco and Vapes Bill: Examination of Witnesses (30 Apr 2024)

Lisa Cameron: Q I want to follow up on something that both of you alluded to earlier in the evidence you have given. Is there any research beginning to form that suggests that, while vaping can be helpful for cessation, it might also be a gateway to smoking itself for young people?
